My friends reckoned I'd got a touch of Paloma Faith going on with last night's outfit, I just felt the need to inject a bit of colour into the proceedings down at the Black Country Arms last night but I was more than flattered by the comparison.

Yesterday was a day of great excitement, not only did we go to the first car boot of the year but we squeezed in a jumble sale, too. Jon found a pair of groovy 1970's curtains from which I promptly made my bag. The perfect size for stowing away my umbrella once we got to the pub and ideal for transporting cheap Asda wine to the curry house.
The car boot wasn't quite in full swing, mostly bootleg DVDs, racks of dodgy sportswear and knock-off designer bags but I did snaffle this tapestry fire screen for £1.50
and this tatty little flip-up sewing stool complete with vintage sewing supplies for £3. I can't wait to get the paint brush and the staple gun on it.
Despite a night of mixing India Pale Ale with Mateus Rose, I was up at 9am this morning, clear-headed and raring to go. I've managed to complete yesterday's Guardian crossword, done the supermarket run, had a Wii Fit workout and I've cut out the pieces for my latest sewing project.

We were very bad on Friday, Jon found a £20 note in his coat pocket and we opted for a delivery curry instead of homemade pizza, so we're having one tonight in front of Come Dine With Me and the rest of the surprisingly acceptable Lidl own-brand rum.
Cheers, my dears! Hope you've had a great weekend, too.
